     Nothing says 'holiday time' quite like kicking back with a brew; 
preferably a local brew! 
In the spirit of relaxation, and more importantly beer, I thought I'd scour the globe (and internet!) in search of budget-brews from around the world. Some are incredibly cheap and some are ...downright terrifying!

What'll it cost you to grab a pint in Hong Kong? Find out below!


*Prices are for draft lagers. No craft beer prices here unfortunately. Maybe next time!
*Prices are approximate.
*Prices determined through personal experience and pintprice.com



These countries will keep you and your wallet satisfied (and may potentially lead to you acquiring more friends than what you walked in with on account of you buying an entire round for under $1 USD!)

-Vietnam:   $0.25-$1 :  ("Fresh beer" in Vietnam is incredibly cheap and will run you about $0.25USD per draft. So go ahead, have another round!)

-Cambodia:  $0.50

-Philippines:  $0.50

-North Korea:  $0.50  (Yes, North Korea. Supposedly, a draft beer in the capital city of Pyeongyang will only set you back $0.50. That's if you're brave enough to seek one out...)
